My sister tears a hole in the sky with a prayer she's written

APPEARANCE
There is no doubt that Ruby is her mother's daughter appearance-wise, though there are some Urquart features to her if you look for them carefully. It is just that most people don't look beyond her skin tone, which is dark -- not as dark as her mother's, but still dark. She has curly brown hair that she uses potions to make more manageable. What is striking about her is that she has her father's gray eyes, an eye colour that you wouldn't expect given her overall appearance.

Ruby is of average height. Her body is shapely, a soft hourglass. Overall, her shape, from her body to her facial features, has a roundness to it.

She's right-handed.

Fashion wise, Ruby is very crafty. She wears Delight's hand-me-downs, which she alters to fit her body better. She wears warmer hues, since they look better with her golden colouring.


PERSONALITY
❧ Charming and extroverted, she is at her best when she is surrounded by many people and when she feels connected and popular.

❧ Mistrustful and prone to be prejudiced about others being prejudiced. She doesn't trust purebloods, upper-class people and the like.

❧ Very feminine, Ruby likes grooming herself, dressing nicely and being taken care of.

❧ She is insecure when it comes to her appearance and her position in the world. She struggles with feelings of inadequacy, of feeling that she doesn't fit in. Deep down, she doesn't truly believe that others see worth in her.

❧ She's not afraid to defend herself and she can be very vocal about things she dislikes.

❧ She craves recognition and she likes to feel accomplished. Deep down, Ruby would like to become famous for something, be it as an artist, or by marrying someone important, etc.

OTHER
Languages — She can speak some conversational Frenc but she couldn't hold a deep philosophical discussion in it.

Amortentia — Baked goods; cookies, cakes, etc. Roses. Coffee. A fruity type of tea.

Boggart — A werewolf.

❧ Ruby is a talented artist. She has created her own Tarot card deck.

❧ She's skilled in the arts of divination, so she can make small predictions. She doesn't have the Sight, but she can use divinational techniques to get a sense of what might happen in the future.

HISTORY
Childhood (1873-1884)

The pair of Ruby and Topaz were the first legitimate children born to Balthazar and Mary Urquart. Theirs was a happy household and the children received a lot of love from their parents.

Ruby was an early bloomer and displayed magic at the mere age of one, by turning a pebble into a ruby. Her Mama kept the precious stone with the intention to turn it into a jewel of some kind when Ruby became older. Her twin was much slower at displaying magic, by doing so years after Ruby had.

A boy joined the family when the twins were three, in 1875. Ruby never much liked Sebastian and neither did he. Not even recent family tragedies have managed to improve their relationship.

The year 1880 saw the family's relocation from London to Hogsmeade. Ruby is pleased with the move, since her new town is much more magical and it's easier for her to see other magical children.

Delight is the first Urquart child to go to Hogwarts, in 1882. Ruby doesn't like all the attention Delight is receiving, and she throws a tantrum during her sister's school supply shopping, when their parents wouldn't buy her an owl.

In 1884, Papa receives the highest honour in magical Britain when he is elected Minister of Magic. The eleven-year-old Ruby is convinced her family is something like magical royalty now.
The twins depart for Hogwarts in the fall of 1884, where they're seperated for the first time. Ruby is sorted into Gryffindor and Topaz into Ravenclaw.

Mama's Death; Adelia Lovegood (1885-1886)

Mary passed away after being bit by an adder. A sad and unfair death, seeing that not even magic could save her. Ruby, who was quite close to her mother, is deeply shaken by her death. With Mary gone, Ruby feels even more vulnerable to her insecurities.

Her father soon decides that he can't raise his children on his own and he looks for a second wife. He becomes involved with a spinster called Adelia Lovegood. Ruby sees her as a threat; she's blonde, rich, and pureblooded and her children will no doubt replace Mary's in Papa's heart! She sees Balt's move to marry her as an attempt to ‘‘fix’’ his mistake of marrying a half-blooded woman of colour and maybe an attempt to reclaim his place in the old magical ‘‘aristocratic’’ world. She's loud and clear about her feelings on Adelia Lovegood and that somehow strains her relationship with Papa.

On the bright side, the ‘‘common threat’’ in the face of Miss Lovegood makes the twins closer than ever. They'd become more distant since going to Hogwarts, seeing that their interests were so different. Ruby cared about being popular and having fun, while Topaz was bookish and studious. It's the two of them against the world, as Ruby's moodiness about the whole ordeal makes her end up in a fight with almost everyone in her life.

The Worst Year of All (1887)

In a shocking turn of events, Miss Lovegood leaves her father at the altar. Without a common enemy, Ruby and Topaz cease to have a reason to be so tight. It's not different from their relationship before the Miss Lovegood shenanigans, but because Ruby got used to them being best friends and because she ended up fighting with almost everyone in her life, she doesn't like the change. She snoops into Topaz's things, finds her diary and is caught red-handed she's reading it. She confronts Topaz about something she had written about her in it and the two end up fighting.

At the beginning of August, during a slumber party at their cousins' house, Topaz leaves in the middle of the night to go back home. She's attacked by a werewolf and she's turned. The family tries to keep it a secret, but it ends up all over the news anyway. Ruby is somewhat scared of her twin, but she tries to push those fears aside for her sake. She also feels terribly guilty, as she suspects that Topaz left in the middle of the night because Ruby and their cousin Demelza were excluding her.

The Aftermath (1888-1889)

Ruby's fifth year doesn't go very well. She progressively becomes depressed after her fall of grace. Many ‘‘friends’’ have turned their backs on her, now that she's no longer the Minister's daughter and she's the sister of a werewolf, on top of that. Even her cousin and best friend since childhood, Demelza, turns her back on her. The other girl feels awkward, seeing that she feels like she should support her cousin but she also has ambitions of hanging out with the rich and posh girls. Ruby gets angry at Demelza, so she cuts her off herself. She ends up being trustful only of Holliday Fudge, who was Topaz's best friend before she was a werewolf and who remains loyal to her, unlike their own cousin!

Academically, she doesn't do well and she doesn't see a point in getting an education. She's not bright like Topaz or even Delight. She prefers her artistic hobbies since they let her unwind and escape from reality. She feels inclined to continue trying at school only because Topaz would really want to be at Hogwarts and she feels guilty to waste away the opportunity given to her.

Her OWL scores aren't the greatest, but they allow her to continue on to her sixth year with Charms, Divination, Herbology, Transfiguration, and of course, Art.

We have the Hogwarts is my home stamp for those who have a thread for every single Hogwarts year IC and OOC BUT, what if we had a Hogwarts is my past one for older characters? In order to get it, they would need to do a past thread for every year at Hogwarts. It'd be a fun way to explore what they were like as children and teens.
